Euros pass the test
Well, my Euros passed the non-dazzle test last night.
I was returning from a quattro meeting through Leicestershire, down the old
road between Melton Mowbray and Oakham. I breezed round a corner, and came up
behind a traffic patrol (fully loaded) driving at 59.999mph.
This was 01:00am - a time when Leicestershire police will stop any driver on
the suspicion of having dirty wing mirrors. I didn't dare pull off, pass or
drop back - I just rolled along behind for almost ten miles. They were
obviously bored - they pulled into a layby and I went past, fully expecting to
be followed and stopped. Not a bit of it - they just let me go.
I'm sure if the driver had felt my lights were too bright, he'd have stopped me
"for a word".
